ASTM-E3120 › Standard Specification for Evaluating Accelerated Aging Performance of Environmentally Controlled Dynamic Glazings
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This specification is applicable to environmentally controlled dynamic glazings (ECDG) whose visible light transmittance or near infrared light transmittance properties, or both, can be changed reversibly by exposure to changing environmental conditions such as temperature and sunlight intensity. This includes thermochromic and thermotropic glazing, but currently excludes photochromic glazings as neither Test Method nor this specification provide a procedure to access multiple states of photochromic glazing specimens.
1.2 This specification does not apply to other types of dynamic glazing which require an electrical stimulus to change light transmittance, such as electrochromic glazings.
1.3 This specification covers environmentally controlled dynamic glazing (ECDG) in monolithic glass, monolithic laminated glass, or pre-assembled, permanently sealed insulating glass units with one or more cavities in which at least one lite is an ECDG (which may be in the form of a laminated lite or a single pane with coatings or film applied). This specification is also applicable to ECDG devices in pre-assembled insulating glass units with capillary tubes intentionally left open. As applicable, this specification also requires conformance to Specification .
1.4 This specification is applicable only to monolithic glass, monolithic laminated glass, and sealed insulating glass units that are constructed with glass and fabricated for vision glass areas for use in buildings, such as sliding doors, windows, skylights, and exterior wall systems.
1.5 Qualification under this specification is intended to provide a basis for evaluating the aging performance of environmentally controlled dynamic glazing in monolithic glass, monolithic laminated glass, and sealed insulating glass units.
1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.7 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
1.8 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
